Malami commended the Ambassador for her tireless efforts and patriotism recalling that Nigeria has cooperated fully with the court through submission of relevant documents which eventually led to its exoneration.

“With due diligence to Nigeria’s mandate under Article 86 of the Rome Statute of ICC, Nigeria cooperated fully with the court through submission of relevant documents, reports of panels of enquiry,” he said.

He noted that a committee has already been established for the domestication of the Rome Statute in Nigeria.

She promised to rededicate efforts to make positive impact in the discharge of her duties.
